Slice of Heaven
Big Dog and I finally left Arcata on Thursday after boring each other with constant reminders that this was July, despite the freaking cold.
"It's the coldest summer on record!" locals told us, but locals are used to the cold and wet. By the time we drove out of there, we were ready for some warm, dry summer weather. (San Francisco, which is always my favorite place to spend the night, was also too cold and wet to fully enjoy.)
Back in Central California, I am blissing out on the stunning weather, the apricots that are still happening, the peaches, plums and nectarines that are coming into season... Enjoying a slice of heaven before Hell Week begins.
